This book addresses a range of highly debated problems among scholars of Plato's Phaedo and provides an overall interpretation of the dialogue. For each of the topics (or Platonic passages) analysed, the book presents a detailed assessment and discussion of the most prominent scholarship. On the basis of this approach, From Death to Life: Key Themes in Plato's Phaedo intends to offer new contributions to the current scholarly discussion, particularly with regard to the knowability of the Forms, "recollection", the doctrine of the soul as a harmony, the problem of causes, and the so-called "second voyage". This book is expected to spark debate among scholars both in terms of the critical assessment of the theses it proposes and of the objections it raises against alternative interpretations.
